Speedway, Indiana -- Ireland's Peter Dempsey won the Firestone Freedom 100, the Indy Lights race that is the traditional starter for the Indianapolis 500 race weekend, by 4 inches. 4 wide. That's just 0.0026s ahead of Schmidt's Gabby Chaves.
"It literally took my breath away," Dempsey's team owner Brian Belardi said. "He did such a great job just holding station. We knew it was going to be a shootout with those three cars in the front and they just poked a massive hole and he was able to sneak in there and just drove a flawless race.
"He is a great race car driver, we all know," he added. "For the team to get their first here, it is so special. Words cannot describe it."
"If you're going to win your first Firestone Indy Lights race, there's no better place to do it than at Indianapolis Motor Speedway," Dempsey gushed. "I had a feeling this end was going to happen, and you know it's going to be four-wide across the line certain enough. It's massive!"
